Sayre, PA –The Golf for Guthrie Hospice committee is seeking local and regional business and individual sponsorships for their 10th annual tournament.  The tournament will be held June 22, 2012 at The Club at Shepard Hills, Waverly, NY. 

The mission of the tournament is to raise funds for Guthrie Hospice to enhance and support Hospice programs and services. The tournament has been successful in raising more than $250,000 since its inception in 2003. All proceeds from the tournament benefit Guthrie Hospice, which provides end-of-life services for patients throughout the region regardless of ability to pay, and offers bereavement services in the community.

(Awards Luncheon Sponsor) will once again be the major sponsors.  However, a wide variety of sponsorship opportunities remain available, including: Special Friend of Hospice Sponsors, Presenting Sponsors, Hospice Caring Sponsors, and Friends of Hospice, as well as beverage cart, hole signs and raffle prize sponsors. Sponsorships are available in many dollar amounts or as in-kind donations. Sponsors receive a range of benefits depending on sponsorship level, including the opportunity to field a foursome in the tournament, inclusion in the event program, and raffle tickets. In addition, gifts in memory of a loved one are also accepted.
